This week I decide to review two Usborne books. They are both part of the combined volumes section and both are illustrated by Stephen Cartwright so your children will quickly become familiar with the characters.

The Complete Book of First Experiences is great for children as they grow and start to become involved with new things. The book includes first visits to the doctor, dentist, and hospital as well as what to expect when you are welcoming a new baby, moving, starting school, getting a puppy, or attending a party.

The Complete Book of Farmyard Tales follows the Boot’s family as they live and work on their farm. Farmyard Tales comes with a read along CD. As a parent my favorite part of the books is how they appeal to a wide age range and are great for new readers.

These books are part of Usborne’s efforts to encourage adults and children to actively participate together in their books. Each page in these books has a sentence at the top meant for your child to read and a more complex sentence at the bottom for the adult. This way the child feels involved in the story.
